Who should attend
The course is structured for electrical engineers that have some familiarity with electric power system analysis. Prior experience with transients is not necessary.
About the course
This course provides delegates with a fundamental understanding of transient phenomena common to electric power systems. The material is especially suited for those who simulate transients with tools such as EMTP, those who analyze waveforms from transient recorders, those who conduct failure analysis, and those who design and specify transmission and distribution systems and equipment.
The main objective of this course is to improve the participant’s understanding of power system transient and overvoltage events such as faults, switching and lightning surges. The participant will exit the course with greater ability to analyze waveforms from EMTP type simulations or from transient recorders. The participant will also have a stronger understanding of insulation coordination and surge arrester applications.
